About Melinda Flerx
Finding this beautiful rustic get-away, and transforming it into The Sugar Shack Retreat has been heavenly. It is our escape for soul renewal, and we love sharing this little piece of heaven with our guests.
Melinda Flerx purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Melinda Flerx chose Fancy Gap
The local wineries, trails, history, and beauty here, and the surrounding towns of Mount Airy, Cana, Hillsville, and Galax is unlike anywhere. Anything you want to venture into is not too far away...20 minutes.. An old country store, Cockerhams, the Dollar General, & The Gap Deli, are a hop, skip n' jump away for quick needs. We love that our cabin can equip many, but also feels so quaint. The constant breezy air that drifts through the trees can only from the top of a mountain:) Local venues offer dining, outdoor attractions, trailing, biking, parks, historical sites, wineries, breweries, more. Historical sites, as well as fun adventures and hiking trails/waterfalls and other venues can be found on our website we will send to you upon booking. We also have logo items for sale on our shopping page:) located on our website. The website will be sent to you once you book with us! If the parkway is closed due to inclement weather, please use Lightening Ridge Rd, which runs parallel and will get you to the cabin.
What makes this Cabin unique
Surrounding small towns offer wineries, local historical venues, micro-breweries, live music, fishing, trailing, biking, playgrounds, swimming, rafting, canoeing, historical name it! And the wildlife on top of the mountain is plentiful and stunning! Don't leave the Gap without visiting the "The Gap Deli at the Parkway", and "Snappy's" ( try the pork chop sandwich:) in Mount Airy (Mayberry). Our cabin has everything you need for the perfect retreat on a mountain top! Just bring something deliscious to put on the large outdoor stone grill and take it all in... Also, bring your own laundry pods if you plan to wash your own laundry. There is no "quiet" like being on top of a mountain, especially sitting under the stars by the fire pit after a relaxing bubbling spa experience. It's just about as close to heaven as you can get. The stars are beautiful... We have new corn hole boards located in the potting shed! Sugar Shack makes its own homemade candles with essential oils for our guests and chooses fresh flowers to greet you at the door🙌🌷 We also offer complimentary homemade coconut soap, and fresh fruit. We pride ourself on the cleanliness of our cabin and outdoor jacuzzi.

We loved Sugar Shack Retreat. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed for cooking! Plenty of clean towels and wash cloths. The beds were super comfortable and the master bath was gorgeous! Our favorite part of the stay was the hot tub and grilling out for dinner. I highly recommend and will be staying again!
Just what we needed!
It was a wonderful place to stay. Our group of ladies enjoyed a peaceful time to enjoy time together.
We chose the Sugar Shack for our honeymoon and had the best time. From the start Melinda (property manager) made us feel so welcomed. She went above and beyond for us. We walked in to find a cozy and super clean cabin. We had fresh roses and rose petals leading into our bedroom (a very nice & appreciated extra touch). This cabin had everything you could ever need. The shower is amazing. The hot tub was perfect. We used the grill almost everyday. While I did not get to enjoy the fireplace due to rain most nights it was nice to have. This is the perfect place to unwind and shut the world out for a bit. We really enjoyed the one on one time. We were right on the parkway and not too far from anything we wanted to do (eating or shopping). I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. Perfect getaway for some romance or even some family time! We are already planning our next stay!
Escape from the city
Had an employee request this venue for Easter Weekend to spend some quality time with his 6yr old son. They had the best time and very much enjoyed being far away from the city. He said they caught some fish at the pond, lounged in the hot tub, had a nice camp fire and played lots of corn hole.
Wow! Absolutely beautiful log home right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Super clean, nice layout, great large kitchen with everything you need for meal prep. Hot tub in the separate building is really nice and everything is in perfect working order. Grill area was a nice bonus with plenty of propane for grilling out! And the master bath was gorgeous. Would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to get away, but not to far from civilization and shopping.
We had a wonderful time at the Sugar Shake!! The location was great, Melinda was super sweet and responsive answering all my questions concerning the property. The cabin itself was very clean and well kept! And the jacuzzi area is great!!! The hot tub was very well maintained and clean!! They have thought of everything you could possibly need or want at the Sugar Shake, with putting lots of thought into each detail. Can’t wait to return next year!
